True Colors ACADEMY
Call for STUDIO Fellow Members
Application Deadline: Sunday, October 13, 2019
What is the STUDIO Program?
At the STUDIO Program, a next generation of creators, artists, teachers, entrepreneurs, students, and engineers coming from different backgrounds and generations will work together to update relationships between “you and me” and “me and society.”
“Discomfort” that emerges out of dialogue and practice between these 30 fellows member will become starting points for ideas that can be implemented in the real world.
Differences that occur when people with different backgrounds meet is where issues emerge in society. At the same time, we also believe that this can be the source for new values and creations.
We hope that ideas born here will imply possibilities for a new society and that these encounters will continue on after the project concludes.
